How Automated Speed Enforcement Could Save Road Workers Lives
This edition of the Talking Michigan Transportation podcast includes conversations with two people working on initiatives to protect workers on Michigan’s roads and bridges. John Osika, a veteran of Operating Engineers, talks about the need for Michigan House Bill 5750, which would allow the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Michigan State Police to set up automated speed enforcement systems in segments of state roads where work is being performed, and other measures to protect workers. Lindsey Renner, MDOT construction operations engineer, talks about the potential benefits of automated speed enforcement. These benefits have been measured in other states, including Maryland.
